Miniature Rifle Shooting

Miniature Rifle Shooting

A careful analysis of the scores reveals that the standard of shooting at Tournament this year reached a new all-time high. It is therefore very much more to the credit of the V.U.C. team that they returned home with so many scalps in their belts. ...

They scored a "possible" of 500 points in the first round of the competition—the first time that this has ever been done.

The won the I.C.I. Shield for the first time since 1953.

Their winning score of 2390.191 set a new record, three points better than the previous record and only 10 points short of the ultimate "possible" of 2400.

Team members gained two of the three N.Z.U. blues awarded.

One team member gained the highest individual total for the I.C.I. Shield.

Another team member shared the aggregate total with John Burton from O.U.

In spite of their opening score Vic. were hard pressed all the way by a most determined Otago team, and the result was a very exciting and closely fought battle.

  • Victoria—2390.191, first.
  • Otago—2386.183. second.
  • Auckland—2371.171, third.

Following the cessation of hostilities North (1980) lost to South (1983), and N.Z.U. (1986) lost to Auckland (1994).

N.Z.U. Blues were awarded to John Burton. O.U.. Ian Newton. V.U.C., and Brian Bradburn, V.U.C.

Congratulations to golfer P. J. Page, and crack shots I. V. Newton nd B. J. Bradburn who were warded N.Z.U. Blues for their performances at Winter Tournament.
